Polarized lenses are the ONLY sun lenses that reduce glare, improve vision and maintain healthy eyes
Once considered a specialty lens that was geared for activities such as fishing, boating, and other water and snow sports, polarized lenses are now the preferred choice by the patient as well as by the ophthalmic professional as the leading lens for sunglasses.
Polarized lenses are made from a special polarizing film that is applied in the factory on the front surface of the lens. This film allows light rays to be filtered, consequently improving the vision in strong light conditions. Polarized lenses will protect you from UV rays, glare and intense light. In combination with a reflection-free coating, polarized lenses are ideal for fishing and driving.
Polarized lenses provide much sharper vision
as compared to the equivalent tinted lenses.
These lenses also block 100% of UVA & UVB.
Polarized lenses help eliminate light reflections originating from horizontal surfaces like water or asphalt. Polarized lenses are made of a special material that filters and blocks out one of the two planes of light that creates blinding glare. Polarized lenses also provide increased contrast.
Reasons to get polarized lenses:
» To minimize early morning or late afternoon distractions when glare is maximized
» Activity in sports or outdoor activities, both as a spectator and participant
» If you find yourself using your hand or squinting into the sun light or if you experience eye strain or fatigue after a long day in the sun
» To give you more relaxed overall vision as sun glare is reduced
» To reduce the dangers of driving with sun glare reflected off of road pavement and vehicle hoods (the most harsh yet subtle danger to safe driving)
» Great comfort when wearing in the snow or on the water
» Cuts right through the water’s glare to the colors and definition below
Polarized Lenses are perfect for:
Not at night. According to Harvard researchers, even dim light can interfere with a person's circadian rhythm and melatonin secretion. "A level of brightness of about twice that of a night light has an effect".
Prolonged exposure to blue light may permanently damage the human eye. Experts have been aware for some time that UV light can potentially damage biological tissue.
Protect yourself from the damaging UV rays and high-energy blue light. Wear Blue Light Protection outdoor lenses and experience the ultimate in visual performance and protection. See everything in high-definition – improved visual acuity, better color perception, reduced glare, and a unique lens technology gives you the outdoor protection you need and the durability to last a lifetime.

VARIABILITY BRINGS THE BENEFITS OF POLARIZATION TO EVERYDAY SITUATIONS
Did you know that bright sunlight can cause glare when light scatters off reflective surfaces, which causes discomfort and dull, washed-out images? Polarization filters this light, so you get better clarity.
Polarization is not limited to sunglasses, which are popular with drivers and boaters for dealing with the harsh glare off the road or the water. However, glare isn’t limited to extreme situations. It’s also present in our everyday lives. Now you can get the benefits of polarization in an everyday lens. Transitions Vantage lenses are virtually clear indoors. Outdoors they increase polarization as they darken. This means that you can get crisper, sharper vision in the dappled light of a tree-lined sidewalk or the full glare of a city street.
